Be Subject to Government1 Every ▼
▼ Or soul, b person is to be in c subjection to the governing authorities. For d there is no authority except ▼
▼ Lit byfrom God, and those which exist are established by God. 2 Therefore ▼
▼ Lit he whowhoever resists authority has opposed the ordinance of God; and they who have opposed will receive condemnation upon themselves. 3 For g rulers are not a cause of fear for ▼
▼ Lit good workgood behavior, but for evil. Do you want to have no fear of authority? Do what is good and you will have praise from the same; 4 for it is a minister of God to you for good. But if you do what is evil, be afraid; for it does not bear the sword for nothing; for it is a minister of God, an i avenger who brings wrath on the one who practices evil. 5 Therefore it is necessary to be in subjection, not only because of wrath, but also j for conscience’ sake. 6 For because of this you also pay taxes, for rulers are servants of God, devoting themselves to this very thing. 7 k Render to all what is due them: l tax to whom tax is due; m custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honor to whom honor. 8 Owe nothing to anyone except to love one another; for n he who loves ▼
▼ Lit the otherhis neighbor has fulfilled the law. 9 For this p “You shall not commit adultery, You shall not murder, You shall not steal, You shall not covet,” and if there is any other commandment, it is summed up in this saying q “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” 10 Love ▼
▼ Lit works no evildoes no wrong to a neighbor; therefore s love is the fulfillment of the law. 11 Do this, knowing the time, that it is t already the hour for you to u awaken from sleep; for now ▼
▼ Or our salvation is nearer than whensalvation is nearer to us than when we believed. 12 w The night is almost gone, and x the day is near. Therefore let us lay aside y the deeds of darkness and put on z the armor of light. 13 Let us ▼
▼ Lit walk, ab behave properly as in the day, ac not in carousing and drunkenness, not in sexual promiscuity and sensuality, not in strife and jealousy. 14 But ad put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh ae in regard to its lusts.
